Alice Eve will join Keanu Reeves in 'Replicas.'
The 'Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb' actress' next movie will team her up with the 51-year-old actor in the sci-fi drama, according to Deadline.
Eve, 34, will play the female lead of Mona in the independent title opposite Reeves, who stars as widowed neuroscientist Will Foster.
Foster dreams of creating a clone with the memories of his dead wife (Eve) after she is killed in a traffic accident, and will stop at nothing, pitting himself against a government-controlled laboratory, a police task force and the physical laws of science.
The story is familiar to one told in the 'Black Mirror' TV series penned by screenwriter and journalist Charlie Brooker.
One episode titled 'Be Right Back' sees with Hayley Atwell's character order a clone - played by Domhnall Gleeson - from a company who are able to recreate a person's personality through scanning their social media, email and online imprint.
It's not known when production on the Jeffrey Nachmanoff directed movie will begin.
Eve has been busy filming heist comedy 'The Brits Are Coming' with Steven Fry and Reeves is set to star in 'John Wick: Chapter Two' next.
